"It's Getting Boring By The Sea" as written by Steven Ansell and Laura Carter....
Leave your parcel at the front door
And run away like you did before
Blister, blister, blister

Let's consider a change of scenery
It's getting boring by the sea
Pictures, pictures, pictures

Oh, no, no, no, no
I can't escape anything in this town
Knock yourself (out)
Oh, no, no, no, no
I can't escape anything in this town
Knock yourself (out)

Such a harsh town, yet so easily
It's never been much in front of me
Keep quiet, keep quiet, keep quiet

Let's consider a change of scenery
It's getting boring by the sea
Pictures, pictures, pictures

Oh, no, no, no, no
I can't escape anything in this town
Knock yourself (out)
Oh, no, no, no, no
I can't escape anything in this town
Knock yourself (out)

Oh, no, no, no, no
I can't escape anything in this town
Knock yourself (out)
Oh, no, no, no, no
I can't escape anything in this town
Knock yourself (out)

Anything in this town
(Can't escape) anything in this town
(Can't escape) anything in this town
(Can't escape) anything in this town

Leave your parcel at the front door
And run away like you did before
Blister, blister, blister

Let's consider a change of scenery
It's getting boring by the sea
Pictures, pictures, pictures

    General CommentThese lyrics aren't right. In the album booklet it says:

    "leave your past atthe front door
    and run away like you did before
    blisters

    let's consider
    a change of scenery
    it's getting boring by the sea
    pictures

    oh, no no no no,
    you can't escape anything in this towon
    knock yourself out

    such a harsh tongue
    used so easily
    never hear it much
    in front of me
    keep quiet

    let's consider
    a change of scenery
    it's getting boring by the sea
    pictures

    oh, no no no no,
    you can't escape anything in this town
    knock yourself out
    you can't escape anything in this town
    you can't escape"

    About the meaning I agree. The "such a harsh tongue used so easily never hear it much in front of me" is obviously about gossiping. You can't escape anything, because everyone knows everything you do.

    Love it!

    General Commenti find that this is about life in those quiet, small, costal villages in england where everyone there is gossiping about their neighbours so you have constantly make a good impression on yourself:its all about 'pictures'. she clearly wants to move somewhere where she can be herself.

    General CommentIs it wrong to imply that I like the way this song isn't overly exciting? Which matches the mood the song is trying to carry.

    When i listen to this song, i relate to that completely dulled out and blank feeling when you are stuck in a place that is defeating. The reference to pictures? I get the idea from the repetition and lack of enthusiasm when singing this line that it's about being bored of seeing the same thing over, and over and over..

    Song MeaningThis is about Brighton, and them being bored by it.
